Has anyone heard about these....I want one for my Blazer!
AirRock for a TJ
not a single image of the system.
sounds like hype and extranious crap added to a simple airbag system to me.
if you want air then make it as simple as possible.
no electric solenoids required, simple gas valves routed in the cab control everything you will ever need
just another thing to break. i read the article in Fourwheeler, dunno how well it would work, IMHO.
K.I.S.S. it, and it will crawl.
Yeah! I'm building a setup just like this right now for my K5. In fact, its the reason I'm going with a full tube chassis and links. I have a set of air rods right now that have presurized chambers on both sides of the piston. One side adjusts ride height while offsetting it with the other side adjusts stiffness. You can simulate the 'Jacking' effect by linking the left and right sides with an electronic valve, one shock compresses and it forces pressure to extend the other side. Many air rod manufactures can custom tailor your rods, including position sensors so you can get tricky with active management and preset positions. They take up very little space mounted parallel with your long travel shocks. The biggest drawback so far has been the lifespan of the seals. I've been air bagging cars for about 6 months now, the ride is great!
